Antique 1890s Ingraham Gingerbread Chiming Clock

$325.00

The beautiful old clock was made in 1890s. It has an authentic Ingraham Clock Company brass clock movement with a rare feature of a separate alarm bell. To set the alarm, move the small brass dial in the center of the dial placing the hour on the small dial under the hour hand. Wind the alarm bell and it will sound off at the set time. The case does not have any name or identification on it so I cannot exactly pinpoint the year of manufacture for this clock. I can only tell by the style of clockworks in the clock. I am pretty sure the dial is not original but that would be really rare for this type of clock. The brass movement has been checked and serviced and the clock is running perfectly and keeping good time. This is a chiming/striking clock that counts the hour every hour at the top of the hour. The gong chime is a beautiful and rich tone.The winding key comes the clock and when the mainsprings are fully wound, the clock will run for approximately 8 days which was common on the very early clocks.The clock case is in great condition with the normal wear for being over 100 years. There are no broken pieces that I can find. The front door has some reverse artwork in gold. It is a wonderful pattern that enhances the appearance of the clock. The pendulum also appears to be original with the clock--very ornate and beautiful. The hands appear to be original to this model clock. This clock is a rare find.
